Visit Nepal 2020 - Transforming Nepal into Tourist Hub

Visit Nepal 2020

‘Visit Nepal 2020,’ is a tourism campaign and a brainchild of Ministry of Culture, Tourism and Civil Aviation and Tourism Board. The campaign is set to usher into the country two million tourists by the end of the year 2020. The objective of the campaign is to promote ‘Destination Nepal’ and Destination In The World among international travelers.

Additionally, the campaign also seeks to engage more locals in the field of tourism and improve livelihoods. This will be achieved through the introduction of new tourism products and tourism activities. The government believes the launch of this ambitious campaign will lead to the creation of around one million jobs in the tourism sector. To promote ‘Visit Nepal 2020’, promotional campaigns will be run in major international cities.

The government plans to align with the private sector, airlines and national and international organizations to implement this campaign. Established tourism brands and other sub-brands will be roped in for promotion and marketing.


As part of the tourism year 2020 campaign, the government plans to develop new tourism products. These will be divided into five major product clusters – Culture, People and Heritage; Cities and Leisure; Outdoor and Adventure; Religion and Pilgrimage; and Nature and wildlife. One district in each region and an ecological belt will be selected as a tourism hub of that region. Potential tourism sites around these hubs will be identified, developed and promoted. Home-stays and community-based tourism products will also get the much needed promotional boost.

Construction work is going on in full swing to complete these two airports at the earliest. Airports in the mountainous areas and Tribhuvan International Airport are also being upgraded. 

The services of national flag carrier Nepal Airlines Corporation will be strengthened with the addition of more aircraft in its fleet. Overland transportation network linking Nepal, India, Bhutan, Bangladesh, and China will also see a marked improvement. To improve the service standards among service providers, training and capacity building programs will be conducted.

I also believe the year will be a blessing for Nepalese tourism industry and workers who depend on it. But due to COVID 19 this must have been posted to another year. My good thoughts are always with Nepalese friends and families.
